Narrative of Services:

To all of you who feel weary, frightened, overwhelmed, alone, take refuge here. You are not alone. There is hope. Let’s navigate these storms together. I want to provide you a safe space to share your struggles, and be truly heard.

At Island Clinical Counselling, you will receive culturally safe, evidenced-based, person-centered services. I have extensive training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Exposure Response Prevention, and Habit Reversal. I am also a clinical supervisor for other clinicians working with clients with OCD. I would be honoured to hear your story and support you through your symptoms.

We also provide services to those with Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours, Hoarding, Tics and Tourette’s, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, and many other areas.
